In the entire scope of the Hebrew Bible, less than 9,000 words are used. Does that sound like a lot? Well, considering that modern Hebrew has more than 33,000 words, contemporary English lands closer to a quarter of a million words, and the “romance” or Neo-Latin languages all count upwards of a 100,000 words in their dictionaries, the Hebrew Bible is remarkably tightlipped by comparison.

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Rep. Dan Bishop (NC-09) introduced the Stop CRT Act and the Combatting Racist Training in the Military Act, which would ban federal funds from being used to promote and teach Critical Race Theory and stop military members from being subject to it as well.
